I have to respectfully disagree with you. According to the bible, He does indeed hate. Those who are sent to hell He hates and visits His wrath on for all eternity. I offer the following scriptures to you as proof. I understand that you recognize God's loving graciousness and I appreciate that. However, Love is not the central characteristic of God's revealed character. Holiness is.

Psalm 5:5, "The boastful shall not stand before Thine eyes; Thou dost hate all who do iniquity,"

Psalm 11:5, "The Lord tests the righteous and the wicked, and the one who loves violence His soul hates."

Lev. 20:23, "Moreover, you shall not follow the customs of the nation which I shall drive out before you, for they did all these things, and therefore I have abhorred them."

Prov. 6:16-19, "There are six things which the Lord hates, yes, seven which are an abomination to Him: 17 Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, 18 A heart that devises wicked plans, feet that run rapidly to evil, 19 A false witness who utters lies, and one who spreads strife among brothers."

Hosea 9:15, "All their evil is at Gilgal; indeed, I came to hate them there! Because of the wickedness of their deeds I will drive them out of My house! I will love them no more; All their princes are rebels."

A very human and understandably immature view of God.

It does not matter what we think. It will be revealed to you once you are ready. Once God knows you are ready.
